Reggae Singer Kefentse Makes Successful Comeback with New Love Song
Summary: With approximately 40 years in the music industry, reggae singer, Aswad Kefentse, whose real name is Michael Smith, seems poised to taste success late in his musical career. This, as his latest single titled “The Specialist”, has been steadily gaining in popularity.
Kingston, JA, September 13, 2015 – Since returning to the musical scene in 1999, Kefenste has performed at several events in an attempt to reconnect with his fans. His hard work appears to be paying off as his new song has been on FM radio, as well as heavy rotation of the accompanying video on several cable receiving numerous spins stations.
A genuine reggae love song, “The Specialist” is an embodiment of Kefenste’s unique vocal skills and helps to spread the artiste’s concept of ‘love and unity for all.’
“I sing music with a message, with the hope that it will help to foster good relationships among people of different color, class and/or creed,” says Kefenste.
